Episode Summary

Brain Drain / The Big Payback
Brain Drain: Master Yo wants Yang to start using his brain to fight bad guys, yet Yang isn't interested. An old floating skull villain named Mastermind, sees a way for him to use Yang's non-interest of using brain power for Mastermind's own advantage. Mastermind tricks Yang into giving up Yang's brain, so Mastermind's brain now inhabits Yang's body! With Mastermind's brain controlling Yang, he can fulfill his plans for world domination, Yang will have to figure out a way to use only his brain in order to get back to the Dojo and get his body back before sundown! Can he do it? The Big Payback: As strong as Master Yo is, there's a villain even he can't beat. Once a year, a purple anthropomorphic clothed horse with black hair named Badfoot with a voice and personality reminiscent of a funk singer, comes into town to steal Master Yo's Woo Foo. And no matter what Master Yo tries, he has been unable to beat him. Even worse, if Master Yo doesn't fight, the villain threatens to bring harm to innocent civilians. Yin and Yang are determined to help Master Yo this time around and prove to him that every villain has a weakness and can be beat!moreless

    In brain drain Master Yo try to teach Yang how to use hes bryne but he didnt want to do it so he went to the mall.There was Mastermind,once a powerfull wizard who took over even seven countries but now hes a floating skull.He needed a body so he took out Yangs bryne and put in Yangs head hes own but he didnt have all control of the body until sundown.Mastermind left with Yangs body to do stuff he can now do and left Yang alone with a sambrero hat.While Yang was trying to get to the Dojo Master Yo and Yin where fighting against Mastermind but they failed.Yang came and defeat him(or rather destroied hes ticket) and he put his own bryne into his own body and know off Masterminds bryne.I really love the episode its PERFECT!moreless
  • Brains, and horses, and music, oh my! :D

    "Yin Yang Yo" seems to be following the philosophy of "MadTv." They're: "Taking it to a whole 'nother level!" :D And they are to! Speaking of "MadTv," former castmember Orlando Jones finally gets in on the "Yin Yang Yo" action! 8) As a bad guy named Badfoot! But before I go into that, let me talk about the first segment. Yang is into might, but either he can't or he won't accept the fact that just because he wants to have brawn doesn't mean that he can neglect his brain either. But Yang doesn't see the point in using his brain power. Unfortunately, someone else does. An evil villainous character named Mastermind decides that he can use Yang's neglection of his brain for an advantage. Mastermind successfully manages to trick Yang into giving up the brain in the body, and for a sombrero no less! Fortunately, Master Yo and Yin don't buy Mastermind's act so he's forced to take matters into Yang's hands. And Yang, who's just a brain, is frantic because now he Has to use his brain (it's the only thing he Can use) to get himself back to the Dojo! Fortunately, he realizes that his reliance on his brain can work wonders! He discovers the powers of Telekinesis and uses it to get himself back to the Dojo! Even better, he uses his brain power to solve the puzzle that Master Yo had given him earlier to get Mastermind's brain out and get Yang's brain back into his regular body. Yang's body and his brain are one again! And Mastermind has to live with the fact that he dances like a sick moose, and Yang has to live with the fact that the best place to be furless is on the Secret Shedding Train, because the place is a secret! :idea: And Orlando Jones channels the spirit of James Brown into a funky purple anthropomorphic horse named Badfoot to lay the smack-down on Master Yo! But Yin and Yang are determined to help Master Yo achieve a victory against Badfoot and they will to! Enough said! ;)moreless

    • It's never revealed what would happen when the Lickin' Stick is fully charged with Woo Foo.

    • Running gags in this episode: 1. When Yang is on the secret shedding train, he instantly loses all of his fur and says, "Good thing this is a secret." 2. Someone dances like a sick moose. 3. Various characters keep saying to somebody else that: "Your music sucks!"

    • New move debuts, Yang: Telekinesis (un-named), Yang uses his brain power to move objects around. Badfoot: Woo Foo Drain, using the Licking Stick, Badfoot can siphon the Woo Foo energy from anyone and add it to his own power. Badfoot loses the Stick and it is added to the Woo Foo Armory.

    • Yang appears completely naked and furless for the first, second, and third time in this episode.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Yin is working a turntable while Yang films her)
      Yang: Keep it up, sis! A couple more shots, we post this up on the internet, and you'll be the rabbit queen of hip-hop!
      Yin: Shouldn't that be, "the rabbit queen of HOP-hop"? (laughs)
      Yang: Okay, you are seriously jeopardizing your cool here.

    • Yang: (after losing all of his fur on the super secret shedding train) Good thing this is a secret.

    • Yin: (To Master Yo) Yang is possessed by an evil wizard that dances like a sick moose! Mastermind: I do not dance like a sick moose!
      (Cuts to scene of Ultimoose at hospital)
      Ultimoose: You see, it burns when Ultimoose does this! (He dances like Mastermind) Ahh! It burns!

    • (As Mastermind gets ready to rub Yin's head)
      Master Yo: (to Mastermind) Don't, she rug burns easily.

    • Yin about Badfoot: Clearly, we underestimated this guy.

    • Yin: For Foo's sake, what do you want?! Mastermind: (as Yang) Say I don't dance like a sick moose! Come On!  Master Yo: You know, you could just take dance less-- (Master Yo's mouth is covered up by Mastermind) Yin: That's all I have to do to get you to lay off? Fine, you don't dance like a sick moose. Mastermind: And I thank you, in memoriam!

    • Yang as brain: What idiot is using mindless violence on my mindless body?

  • NOTES (0)


    • Youtube: When Yang uploads the video of Master Yo onto the Internet, he says that it's already gotten over a million hits. This is a reference to the website where you can watch and upload recordings of television and video for free and where the success of the downloaded material is measured in hits.

    • James Brown: The way Badfoot acts and talks/sings is reminescent of the late, great funk singer who's greatest hits include I Feel Good; Papa's Got a Brand New Bag; and Please, Please Me; all of which were referenced in this episode.

    • Bigfoot: The name Badfoot is a parody of the famous Sasquatch creature frequently seen in mountain areas in the U.S. and other parts of the world.

    • The Exorcist
      When the Mastermind-controlled Yang gets angry, his head does a full 360 turn the way Linda Blair did in The Exorcist.
